Judge Lisa Sharon Walsh was elevated to the Circuit Court by appointment this April 2011 after serving as a County Court Judge since 2008. Thanks to your generous past contributions Judge Walsh successfully retained her County Court seat in the 2010 election. She is up for election in August 2012 to retain her present seat as Circuit Court Judge and needs your help again.
Prior to her court service, Judge Walsh spent sixteen years as a trial and appellate lawyer, first as an Assistant Public Defender in both the trial and appellate divisions, and then for several years handling both civil and criminal matters in private practice. She also served as a Special Master for the City of Miami Beach. As a practitioner, Judge Walsh received the highest “AV Preeminent” rating from Martindale-Hubbell and was named in Super Lawyers and Florida Trend Legal Elite as one of Florida’s top appellate lawyers.
In addition to her practice, Judge Walsh was President of Miami-Dade Florida Association for Women Lawyers, Vice-Chair of a Florida Bar Grievance Committee, and served on the Board of Directors for Legal Services of Greater Miami.
Judge Walsh is presently the Southeast District Director for the National Association of Women Judges and is co-chairing NAWJ’s annual conference in Miami in 2012. She also teaches appellate advocacy at St. Thomas University Law School, is a mentor for Educate Tomorrow, a nonprofit organization that provides mentors for youth aging out of foster care, and has been a mentor for Big Brothers / Big Sisters.
Judge Walsh is exactly the kind of person all of us want to keep on the bench. She is smart, experienced, hard-working, patient, empathetic and fair. She loves her job and feels that it is an honor and privilege to be a judge.
We are fortunate to have friends and colleagues like you who were so supportive of Judge Walsh's past campaign. Your support was instrumental in her winning the last election unopposed.
We hope you will support Judge Walsh again in her bid to keep her seat as Circuit Court Judge.
